Welcome Message

We are once again gathering virtually June 6-8 to roll up our sleeves and advance our technical community work! As with our previous virtual D&TFs, this is a time for community-generated sessions that address the challenges we all face in our projects and celebrate our successes together.  We will once again have a mixture of plenary, multi-project, and individual project sessions. For recommendations on session type, please see this link:

tl;dr: Sessions that address specific releases, features, problems, or collaboration plans tend to yield the best results from these types of sessions.

We've also got a slide template for the D&TF that we encourage everyone to use: LFN Technical Meetings PowerPoint Template

Also, we know that these virtual events are an investment of time, and sometimes our management and/or colleagues might need some convincing to help us carve out that time. We've got a "Convince Your Boss" page here:

Please also note that we will  be gathering in person in the fall in Europe. We know we're all dealing some some travel restrictions in light of the current economic environment, but we also have heard the message from you that in-person collaboration time is key for our communities. We'll be sharing date and time for that event as soon as we've got logistics details finalized. 

I and all the LFN staff are very much looking forward to "seeing" you in June! Let's make some progress for our ecosystem!
